Jim Caldwell's word count

Just scanned the Colts’ official transcript of Jim Caldwell’s media session Monday. It looked sparse.

I believe Caldwell is a thoughtful guy who will give a well thought-out question a well thought-out answer. And I’m fine when he’s short on things where he’s not going to give much information on or when he gets asked something that doesn’t make a lot of sense.

Nevertheless, I was inclined to play with the numbers. So here’s an entry I’ll call “Jim Caldwell’s word count," a concept I could revisit.

Average answer in words for Caldwell’s 18-question Monday news conference: 48.72.

High: 109

Low: 8
